A while ago Resistance 2 was voted down because of the metacritic war between the PS3 and X360 fanboys. Now it's the turn of the big PlayStation exclusive Killzone 2, because the first review was posted on metacritic.
lol expect the score to go down even further, the envy is strong for this one
I hate Fanboys, but i guess if gametrailers gets to review this game why cant other 360 fanboys too? ill base my review on IGN and 1UP, maybe even gameinformer and gamepro but i wouldn't count on it
i will still buy it..it will still sell very well...n metacritic will still suck as usual
I guess this shows the desperation and the jealousy of the fans of the other platform.
Who really didn't see this coming? I don't eben know what people gain from putting false scores in on this site. How many people will now actually go to this site and it will make them nop longer want to purchase Killzone 2?
Expect this for God of War 3, Uncharted 2, GT5, Heavy Rain... shoot they might even go after the next pixeljunk...
I actually find it funny and flattering, If I were a hardcore 360 fanboy I would be jealous of Killzone too.
I have all 3 consoles but i prefer the xbox 360 since i had it for longer, but i would never waste any of my time to try and make a ps3 game look bad it s just to ridiculous. those people must be under 10 years old or at least they are mentally. like all those "Xbox army or Sony task force" or whatever they call themselves. like they're on a mission or something. that's just so lame.
All you idiot fanboys build the hype up so much that the game will never reach the orgasmic better than sex experience your all hoping for. LBP a great game but fanboys say FAIL. GTA a great game but fanboys say FAIL. Gears of War 2 a great game but fanboys say FAIL. According to fanboys any new exclusive is a fail because they all dreamt about it too much before it was released.
Xbox fanboys seriously have no life. The sad thing is that they put the scores down first, PS3 fanboys just retaliated, now they're doing it again. I see it now more as a testament to the greatness of the game, it just shows that this game is SO good, that Xbox-only owners are scared, scared that it will show how capable the PS3 is. I can smell their fear...
so...it is true,fanboyism is a disease doctors,hurry and invent cure for this mental disease,you'r going to earn lots of cash. can't believe it just imagine how they LOOK when THEY GIVE GREAT GAMES 0 SCORES CAN'T BELIEVE IT I've never seen anything like this,this is videogames,not war,countries,religions etc... killzone 2 is for you gears 2 is for you you can enjoy them all WTF is going on F fanboys
KZ2 pretty much shut every single person up. Now its just going to be little niggle nitpicking about why the gun flares aren't 100% scientifically accurate and nonsense like that. Everytime you get a disagree. Every retarded low score the game gets, it just shows that the game really is what it said it was. And people are just amazingly childish.
Evidence of that or you can not mention that period.
Of course thats sounds right to you Megatron. We expect nothing less from you fanboys. <_<
are you joking? you are super natural
And I wish sony would do the same so all the PS3 owners would have something better to do than troll this site...
And I wish 360 fanboys would stop trolling this site and tracking me down just to slam a disagree button because they don't like what I have to say. But...that won't happen anytime soon, now will it? Because 360 fanboys are innocent! They can do no harm!
I don't rely on Metacritic ratings when I decide whether I want to buy a game or not. Never have. And I don't know anyone else who does, either. So I honestly don't get what the fuss is about. Let the babies have their bottle - getting all hot n bothered over something so stupid is exactly the response they're looking for.
It's not really that Metacritic sucks, but rather stupid fanboys abusing the system.
You say you will base your review on ign and 1up but that's not much better than Gametrailers bias. 1up has Shoe still lurking around even though he was such 360 fanboy they told him to quit because it started to really look bad. And ign is really just a 360 site. Sure, they have some joke of a Playstation team now, but that's because it looked really stupid having part of the site funded as teamxbox and that same site (ign) claiming to deliver fair coverage of all platforms. My best advice is to base your review on yourself and rent any game your not sure of potentially.
Its obvious ps3 fanboy padded the score on this game there is no way it ever deserve a 6.3
My people. Sons and daughters of PlayStation. For many years, we have been a broken nation. Shunt, oppressed, and conquered by those we sought to escape. 10 years ago, I asked for time, and that time was granted by you. You, the strength in my arm, the holders of my dreams. Our forefathers embarked on the greatest exodus in the history of all mankind. An exodus for freedom. PlayStation became that freedom. Our new world changed our bodies. At first, it weakened us, but in fact, we were growing... stronger. In the time you have given me, I have rebuilt our nation, I have rebuilt our strength, and I have rebuilt our pride! Our enemies at home have been reeducated. We have given them new insights into our cause. On this day, we stand united once more. On this day, those driven to divide us will hear our verse. On this day, we shall act as one, and we shall be ignored NO MORE! Defenders of the PlayStation dream, NOW IS OUR TIME!
At least those who join in the Al Qaeda's purpose were actually brainwashed. But fanboys brainwashed themselves into a nonexistent war, trying to complete objectives that they think will help them "win the war". The funny thing is that the media is profiting from this nonexistent war, while those fanboys gain absolutely nothing. In fact, they just lose precious time that could be spent gaming. One would even question whether they even play games...
Funny how its only PS3 fanboys that troll this site according to you. Its even funnier when 360 fanboys come onto PS3 articles, and say N4G is run by "Sony fanboys". Hmm, you're in a PS3 article, did you expect to see mainly 360 gamers? Of course, PS3 articles will be full of PS3 gamers, and they WILL defend the PS3 when it is attacked because they obviously like their PS3. PS3 and 360 articles are both littered with fanboy trolls. If you see someone attacking the 360 in a 360 article, of course you'll defend the 360. There's nothing wrong with you viewing PS3 articles, but if you're going to complain about how there's too many PS3 users on PS3 related articles, then you don't belong in the PS3 section.
You're lucky you guys only deal with one game vs every single game shown/released etc lol.
This is what they do with their spare time as they have no decent exclusive games coming out this year. Boredom is setting in
didnt you sony fan boys start lowing the scores of xbox360 games you sony ass kissers are truly are a fu.k up lot its like punching some one and then playing the victim.
The lower the user score on meta the better the game......
I have been going to Metacritic for 2 years and this is common for exclusive games on both sides! I will say that it has gotten worse since people started referring to metacritic reviews on N4G. So more than likely, the same fanboys here just flooded that site.
So PS3 fans are supposed to take it like a b*tch, right? When you guys start something, DON'T expect there won't be retaliation in return. You guys started this whole hateful agenda against the PS3 first. Then, when the other side retaliates, it becomes a never ending cycle. This console war needs to end.
Well.. yes, they should. Here is why I say this: One thing the PS3 fans like to talk down about on the x360 is the age. PS3 fanboys always say the x360 fanbase is made up of teenagers and little kids. And, they like to boast that the PS3 fanbase is more.. mature. When you retaliate, especially for something stupid like this, you are not being mature. Grow up and be the bigger person, duh.
And 360 fanboys are still saying to THIS day that the PS3 has no games when they know damn well it has games. Then they keep reiterating that the PS3 is just a bluray player. Then they started this metacritic nonsense. Their attitudes towards PS3 fans and the PS3 itself is what caused this retaliation and for the most part I have been guilty for being involved. I want to go back to the days where I actually played games and didn't even know a console war was going on and this will be my New Year resolution.
What does that have to do with anything? There is a lot of things I could say that the PS3 fanboys have said that they know is not true. But, I won't cause I'm bigger than that. And, see, that's the difference between me and you. You get involved with this nonsense. I, too, would like to be able to ignore all of this fanboy war bullspit, but when you talk about retaliating.. that doesn't help the "war" dissipate, or go away, all it does is root it on. Show that your bigger than that and don't "retaliate" and maybe it will stop. Let the fanboys and kids have their fun.. you ignore it and it may stop. But, eh, one can only wish.
double standards much? I was replying to him with a similar statement to show that it goes both ways. Do you really think I'm so naive to think that there are no 360 fanboys? But thus, a PS3 fanboy says something stupid, he gets 20 agrees and 2 disagrees. Someone shows him why it's stupid and gets 25 disagrees...
I know how that goes.. Sometimes I worry bout putting someone in their place cause I don't wanna lose all my bubbles. =(
Im still buyin it Edit. @tatotiburon - i disagreed with u when i should of agreed sorry brother hav a bubble instead
a+ for common sense
i'm not buying it now. obviously fanboy extremists know what a good exclusive is. thanks for saving me $ fanboys :)
ummm everyone needs to fined out that in the gaming world when users rate games it means sh!t cause we all know tha people be messing with ratings thats why i dont listen to reviews or user scores i just look at trailers and previews of the oficialy site and look at the pics if i like it il get it... thats why i got LBP well that and i played the LBP beta and it got me there
people still go to that site? i go to gamestats.com for scores i stopped buying into anything metacritic considers a viable source.
only a retarded pay attention to USER reviews
Game rankings is a good average review site aswell.
on gamefly are pretty good actually. They're more realistic than a lot of other reviews are. I think it has to do with the people reviewing them having rented the games and having to pay for the service.
"gamefly are pretty good actually. " I 2nd that. And the reason for that, is because the actual owners of the game who rent for the PS3 or even 360, will rate the game accordingly because they actually own the consoles. And so far most of the ratings match my own sentiments. Much more accurate that metashitric.
Halo ODST will be next :)
Lol i tried halo wars but it wont let you review it untill its out XD
see and thats the typcial fanboy stupid nonsense that causes this stupid crap...........way to go on being douche bags
It's true. Fanboys from both sides are guilty and it's annoying as hell.
It sickens me to know people hate when its done yet you openly omitted to trying to do it. @Nathan You are no better. If you havent played the game, you shouldnt be giving a score. That goes both ways. Dont raise a score of a game and dont lower one.
then sony fanboys replied with Gears of war 2 then the bots again did their job with LBP and now with Killzone 2!! the bashing xbots = 3 ps3 games ps3 fanboys = 1 360 game clearly the bots have no life accept bashing in the internet and MS supporting them by throwing some cash at some reviewers and article writers!! every low score for Killzone 2 from the bots just shows how powerful this game is!! its flattering actually! poor them, all what MS threw at them is halo 2.5 and gears of war 1$1.5!!
BS! If you think this started with Resistance 2 you don't know what your talking about. This started all the way back at Halo 3, but Meta actually went in and fixed a lot of it. I'm not going to say who started it but stop saying it's 360 fanboys who did it first. Oh and then go look at Halo Wars, KZ2 the biggest victim my arse. The only difference is Xbox fans aren't crying about it like fishheads cry about everything.
6.3 seems like an accurate rating to me for that game.
your in denial and you know it, if they announced it for the 360 you would be off your fuking rocker
Lol at the disagrees - is sum1 jealous or just plain pathetic?
it's the disagree troll, a mystical creature that runs amok in the servers of n4g, trying to make a difference in the world of gaming
+ bubbles for kazuma
We could retaliate on a 360 game, unfortunately they got nothing.
Alan wait/Alan in the dark?
Don't you mean retaliate *again* on a 360 game, right? This pathetic tit-for-tat has been going on since long before the LBP story came up.
After they did R2 i went and owned L4D 360 XD
wait alan 08 wait 09 oh nooo wait 2010 yeah lol... well when the next exclusive 360 game comes out well there we will get back.. but thats a far away thing soo lets enjoy killzone 2 first lol...
the next 360 exclusive comes out before killzone 2 actually...
13 agrees to that ignorant comment. You do know that Ninja Blade, a 360 exclusive is coming out in Feb before Killzone 2? http://www.vgreleases.com/x... FUD denied. So there you go, now the baby gamers have a game they can attack right back. Because 2 wrongs make a right! Tit-for-tat is where it's at! Would you expect anything less from immature little children that I'm sure represent most of these folks.
I remember when PS3 fanboys went on a spoiler spree and posted Gears of War 2 spoilers everywhere on N4G. Not only the comments and report sections, they even spammed the pending news section with fake posts that contained spoilers. It was one of the unlucky that got confronted with those spoilers before I had finished the game. Lowering a games user score on Metacritic is pretty innocent in comparison. @mrdxpr2 - Actually the 360 will get 2 exclusives before the PS3 has it's first. Stoked and Ninja Blade.
lol The people have spoken
2008, 2009 same year with new number? Also expect Heavy Rain, Alan Wake, Infamous, Halo3:ODST and countless other exclusives to fall like that.
They might as well just remove "user reviews" for exclusive games. But no, Marc Doyle likes it the way it is.
Marc Doyle is a giant d-bag he could just end this but loves that fact that his pathetic excuse for a web site is getting hits by allowing little immature fanboys to plague every 360/PS3 exclusive games user reviews with low scores. This just shows the true jealousy of fanboys it s to bad people can't just get along and play games instead of trying to inflate there egos and obtain an erection every time there console wins in sales for a certain month.
http://www.neogaf.com/forum... "Just beat the game, and all I can say is 'WOW', not to tease or anything, just seriously, WOW." http://www.neogaf.com/forum... "Took me 22 minutes and 36 seconds to beat it, but many, many, many tries. Loved it. Full game took me roughly 9 and a half hours also but my single player completion was just at 46%. Honestly, never felt the game to be over too soon, it was very well paced climaxing beautifully at the end." :)
